    I have been working at LendingTree full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The company has been growing a lot and equity is given to all employees, which has turned into a lot of money for someone at the place I am in my career. Unlimited PTO (my manager lets me take off as much as I want which is often). There is always work to be done and something new to work on! Culture is really casual which I appreciate.

    Cons

    Catered lunches are worse than public school cafeteria food. They also don't hire enough people. It's not the recruiters fault they don't budget for enough people and try to keep it lean. Also no real room for promotion since it's such a flat company.

    Advice to Management

    Try to preserve culture as the growth continues

    I worked at LendingTree full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Relaxed working environment, unlimited PTO (kinda), relatively high level of autonomy to work when and where. Free beer!

    Cons

    Cliques that are difficult to penetrate. Everyone stays to their own kind, and if you happen to be an outsider, it is difficult to foster good working relationships with your peers. Seems like, at least in Engineering, they've been hiring the same person for the past 10 years. (i.e. white male with 5-10 years of .NET experience. ) and use offshore resources to augment staff.

    Advice to Management

    Diversity is not a problem here. But diversity without inclusion can make employees feel isolated.
    Also, the company could be missing out on a lot of talent and unique perspectives by not fostering the careers of up and coming engineers.

    Pros

    Work hard - play hard. You're given the tools to succeed within your role and given the opportunity to have fun while doing it. Events to keep employees happy, communication from executive team, perks (suite tickets, on-site lunch, snacks, etc.). Many employees are loyal to the company.

    Cons

    LT is growing quickly so there is always work to be done.

    I have been working at LendingTree full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    LendingTree has a relaxed yet driven attitude and environment. We're given the tools, resources, and freedom to work as we need to in order to create truly great products! Management expects results, but they allow great flexibility in achieving these - in short, they treat employees with respect as adults.

    The company is also doing very well from an overall performance standpoint, and they're positioned very well for the future.

    Cons

    Hard work is what drives the growth and success of the company, and this work and the hours can take a toll. But management and the company as a whole work to support employees through this in various, helpful ways. There are lots of perks and pluses provided to make work life comfortable and productive.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to take care of your employees, and they'll take care of LendingTree!

    I worked at LendingTree full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    I worked in customer care, which is the least appreciated department. The CEO, Doug Lebda, didn't even realize that department even existed after the layoff in 2009.

    Cons

    No job security, no respect from the "other" side, they don't care about employees opinions and they're treated like pawns.

    Advice to Management

    Don't just pretend to care about customers and employees.

    Pros

    Lending Tree offers a relaxed work environment. As long as you do your job properly you can enjoy the down time you have through the day. Management is understanding and willing to work with employees. As the business continues to grow the company offers room for personal growth as well.

    Cons

    The job can be repetitive but that is how it is with all contact centers.

    Pros

    Amazing benefits. $3 catered lunch's. PTO is very reasonable. Heath insurance is affordable

    Cons

    One of the cons that I can think of is that there is very little room to grow in the customer care role. Its very easy to reach a plateau.

    Advice to Management

    Overall management is great and personable and attentive. Just promote more growth or training so that one is able to grow with in LendingTree .

    I worked at LendingTree full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Consistent with what everyone else has already said! Relaxed attire, good learning experience, good food perks. Hours can be a bit long

    Cons

    While maternity leave is competitive, paternity leave is abysmal... 1 week is a slap in the face to men. So much for allowing time to bond with your child... They are not keeping up with the times... follow the lead of FB, Ally. Amazon and countless others

    401k match is only 3%. Standard is generally 4%.

    Thank you for your feedback! While we have an uncapped PTO program, we have acknowledged that we could carve out a more defined, robust paternity program so changes to the program will be rolled out... More

    Pros

    Growth-minded company that's constantly looking for expansion.

    Cons

    High turnover. Micromanagement. Ridiculous amount of office politics.

    Advice to Management

    Care more about your employees. High turnover costs everyone.
